The cabin is de­tached

Science Illustrated - - TECHNOLOGY/ PLANE CRASHES - V. TATARENKO/RUMBLE

A Ukrainian air­craft en­gi­neer has patented an in­ven­tion that sep­a­rates the pas­sen­ger cabin from the rest of the plane.

1 In case of en­gine failure, etc., the pi­lot de­taches the cabin from the rest of the plane.

2 As the cabin is de­tached, two large para­chutes are re­leased, en­sur­ing a soft land­ing.

3 In­flat­able air cush­ions un­der the cabin make sure that it lands sofly and is able to float on wa­ter.
